7:34 am
positive message, a blue print for america's comeback. >> uh. >> and there is some ways of getting jobs. have reasonable regulations, unleash our resources and all of these ideas to get our country ascending again and virginians recognize whether we have a change in washington, the senate or presidential race and so, anyone who uses electricity ought to be on our side and their ideas will help out lower electricity bills, the same as anyone driving a car and on day one, i'm honored to serve the people of virginia and i will introduce a bill to virginiava and us get items for transporting a. if mitt romney is in the white house, he'll be saying yes to virginia energy from our fields to our coal field and we have someone who doesn't have that same point of
7:35 am
view. >> let's talk about, since you mentioned mitt romney, if you don't have mitt romney in the white house. do you think you would be able to work with the obama administration in you have been very critical of the democrats, of the obama administration and tim kaine as l. do you think you could sit down and reach across the aisle and work with them? >> i will work with anyone no matter what party, what state to create more job opportunities for virginians and americans. i would hope that if we were a majority, we could stop the e.p.a. from outlawing coal. if outlawed, all of our electricity bills will go up beyond the enormous job losses and the railroads, the coal fields and those related to it and i would hope to convince an obama administration that has been against it to allow us to produce oil and gas off of our coast and that would be, obviously, a lot easier if mitt romney's in the white house because he's taking the same
7:36 am
position on the issue of obama care, which my opponent said, quote, would be great for democrats. i heard from many seniors, healthcare professionals, small businesses that don't want this regardless of the political pesituation, it's not right for them and they will be -- it will affect our veterans as well. tricare is tied to medicare and that is the situation, i think, what they have to do is to do it by the bill and say that the irs won't enforce these. however, to make america more prosperous, a land of opportunity, i will work with john metlet me ask but, first, congratulate you first, sunday, i believe, picked up the endorsement of the richmond times dispatch. one of your criticisms of tim kaine is that he has workd too closely or too closely aligned with the obama administration policies and even at times dispatched the endorsement, you
7:37 am
noted that during your time in the senate. you, quote, acted as a reliable vote for president george w. bush for better or worse. what is the difference between your support for president george w. bush and tim kaine's support for president obama? >> it's not the personalities it's the policies. i personally like obama a great deal. i like him and admire him. it's the issues, the agendas tim kaine is supporting that are hurting virginians. this outlaw of coal is harmful to communities in southwest worry -- southwest virginia and railroads and those that use the electricity. the same thing with the keystone pipeline. if we're going to import oil, canada is a great ally. the sequestration bill is jeopardizing over 200,000 jobs in virginia. i could never imagine being for something that could be harmful, so harmful to our
7:38 am
military readiness and jobs of virginians. even secretary defense panetta said it would be devastating and rather than saying we should raise taxes, raising taxes, people are hurting and this is not a time to raise taxes with this weak economy. the solution is to stop the defense cuts, make priorities and the senate hasn't passed a budget in 3 1/2 years. >> you talked a lot about, not just you, but a lot of others talk about the sequestration which would, i think everyone agrees, would have dramatic effects across the country and devastating affects in virginia, particularly with the defense cuts and you talk about you can't imagine supporting it. it was, it was a bipartisan coalition of people who supported it. the purpose was to force some agreements and some decisions to be made regarding congress. do you think they're going to
7:39 am
allow sequestration to happen? and how do you suppose stopping that from happening and protecting virginia? >> first of all, they sloughed off responsibility to another commission, which failed and where are we in $1.4 trillion deeper in debt, our credit rating is downgraded and we have the devastating cuts. my opponent tim kaine said it's the right thing to do. i think it's the height of your responsibility. the hie house, by the way, in may, passed the measure to avert the cuts. making them where it's not perfect but it's a start. the senate's done absolutely nothing and that is why needs to be done. can you take the house version and add revenue in and can you close loopholes. let's get tax reform so the tax code is much more simple, fair is come competitive, where we can find a basis of bipartisan agreement and utilize the american energy resources. if we do so, and not just in
7:40 am
virginia but to alaska. the federal government can get $1 trillion in revenues without raising taxes. there are ways of averting this and setting priorities rather than sloughing it off on commissions. it's the democrats, and i don't want a partisanship, they're the ones who said let's have the $500 billion, half of the cuts coming from the paramount responsibility andd federal government, the national defense. not only is it wrong, it's dangerous to use it, the 200,000 men and women who have jobs in virginia as a political bargaining trip to raise taxes to create small business. >> tim kaine supported the budget control act, i believe, and the setup of the southwest rage. do you honestly believe that he supports losing 200,000 jobs in virginia? >> we're had several debates and in one of the recent debates, he said it was the right thing to do. now he's saying, also out of the democrats in washington,
7:41 am
are saying the only way to avert it is by raising taxes on job creating small business owners. raising taxes is not away of creating more jobs. in fact, it would be job losses from it and the big difference revenues. what, i think there needs to be reasonable cuts and restraints on spending. tim's point on raising revenue news is raising taxes. there is another way and that is where with a vibrant economy that is healthy and growing and business is prospering and individuals working as opposed to getting unemployment benefits and that is a big difference and that is why energy is the solution for much of it and let's work together to reform the tax code to, rather than having the worst in the world on taxes, let's be better-than-average and my proposal that i put forward would help create over 500,000 jobs a year and the government
7:42 am
would get over $23 billion more in revenues and we would have more investment in america. >> all right, governor, we'll come back and talk about taxes and injury. we have to take a break here. can you is stay with us and we'll come back and talk with governor george allen. we'll be right back. 741time. a: i'm barack obama and i approve... this message. 7:41. that's what mitt romney called forty-seven percent... of americans. including people on medicare. but what about his plan for you? romney would replace guaranteed benefits with a voucher system. seniors could pay six thousand dollars more a year. a plan aarp says would undermine medicare. you're no victim...you earned your benefits. don't let mitt romney take them away. imillion dollars for maryland one hundred schools.ty... question seven will double it. rushern baker: question seven will add table games and... a new casino, generating millions of dollars... every year, without raising taxes. leggett: and audits will ensure the money goes...
7:43 am
where it's supposed to. more jobs, and millions for schools. baker: question seven will be good for our kids... our teachers, and our schools. leggett: keep maryland money in maryland. baker: please vote for question seven. leggett: vote for question seven.
7:44 am
. welcome back at 744time, we're talking with the former governor george allen of virginia, the republican senate candidate in virginia. sir, we're talking about taxes. i mentioned that the richmond times dispatch endorsed you and the "washington post" did not. they endorsed tim kaine. >> not a surprise. >> in their endorsement of cane, they said, quote, you have signed a pledge to never raise taxes, thereby allowing ideology to trump bipartisan compromise. how do you respond to that? >> i respond to them on the side of the taxpayers. they working really hard and families and business owners. if they want to go to
7:45 am
washington and work for tax increases, i am not your person. we reduced taxes and cut them back $600 million. i would have liked to have cut them more, but that is all we could get. and we have the taxes off of social security, removed the discriminatory tax against federal and military retirees and with all of that, over 300,000 net new jobs were created during my four years. tim, on the other hand, tried to raise taxes and by $4 billion, people earning as little as $17,000 a year. over 100,000 jobs were lost when he was governor, so, the way you grow the economy, you mentioned supporting various policies in the past. i am glade supported the tax cuts that we passed in 2001- 2003. over 7 million jobs were created and we remarks verted the recession that was -- we reverted the recession that was coming after 2011. this is the tax code, and where

i think we can come together and get a solution. there are democrats and republicans advocate a flatter more similar tax on our country. some are advocating higher than 20%, some lower. i think we can get around and if the number is 22.17, let's get it done. whatever helps to create the most jobs and reducing the taxes will make our country more competitive for investment investment and jobs, raising taxes will harm working families. >> i think, you know, we understand the need for taxes. nobody likes high taxes, but do you see any scenario under which you would raise taxes? sometimes are tough. are there any scenarios where you can see yourself raising taxes? >> this is where i see the comprehensive tax reform. on corporations, businesses is 35%. john deere, for example, pays an effective rate of 33%.
7:47 am
some corporations pay zero. if the taxes say 20%, john deere's taxes will be lower but those paying zero will have more higher taxes. end up with a competitive and simplified approach. >> a minute left. >> tim kaine, what do you like about him? is there anything you admire about tell cape? >> we're actually friends. we get along. we do a debate and have different points of view. he was a cheerful person in in that respect, when he's advocating for his partisan views which, are different than mine. >> folks want to know something personal about the candidates. do you have an ipod? >> i have an ipad and a blackberry. >> do you listen to music? what is your favorite music? >> country music. >> country music. favorite artist? >> i would have to go with johnny cash. >> the classic? >> yeah. oh, yeah. i like the real country music. johnny cash, merle haggard,

8:18 am
debates that we just sat through. i was joking with you for about 10 1/2 hours of our life the last two weeks or so. what did you think about the debates just putting it in historical perspective. >> trial -- historically debates don't often change people's minds. but i think the first debate clearly had a major impact on the race. the obama campaign spent the entire summer sort of chase testing mr. romney as being out of touch and then during the first debate he showed himself to be personable and articulate. i think that take away a lot of the attacks that obama had pushed toward him. beyond that, i think the debates have been won, if that's the word, which i don't think, by mr. obama but i think the real question is were they
8:19 am
able to accomplish what they wanted. last night they were speaking to very narrow segments of the undecided voters and trying to appeal to them. >> doctor, what picks up steam what gets the attention of the people watching and even the people there. when they had the exchange about the size of the military, i think you heard a little laughter. i'm not sure what you heard in the audience but what do you think gets the attention of people to maybe dare i say sway a voter to one side or the other. >> i think unfortunately what gets the attention of the media and folks who spend their time watching this are the zingers, the one-liners where they really put people down. i think the voters on the other hand are trying to seek real knowledge and debates are not true debates in one person identifying what they want then
8:20 am
a reason discussion of that. they are more like joint press conferences where each is staying to his talking points trying to communicate a message to those last few undecided voters. for example, last night we saw a lot about women both obama talking about women in the middle east and they need to improve their lives and then both candidates talking about the economy here trying to link that to foreign policy. but basically trying to appeal to women which appears to be the most critical voters that will really determine the election. >> we could pick out little things in debates going way back. actually, let's go way back. let's talk about the nixon, president nixon with the 5:00 shadow of the sweaty appearance. are people watching for body language or appearance as much as they are listening or does
8:21 am
that not really matter? >> i think in the age of television -- you mentioned the first televised debate, appearances are important. in that particular case, much like today, last night, we had a person who was well known having served as vice president for eight years and a challenger completely unknown. so, in terms of kind of the pecking order, the prestige that people gave nixon versus kennedy, kennedy's appearance put him on an equal footing with the vice president. that did have a major impact. >> not to interrupt you but we saw in the first debate a lot was made of the president looking down and vice president joe biden sort of with that smile on his face when he went up against paul ryan. so, you know, you do sort of notice it and perhaps it's because of that format as you
8:22 am
call it the joint press conference. >> yeah. i think that is certainly true. i thought in that first debate you did a lot of head shots and you would switch between romney and obama and romney is physically bigger. his head is bigger than obama, particularly with the haircut and obama's close cut hair. when you shifted from one quickly to the other, the president came off as looking less vigorous, if you will, than romney did. but i think that was one of the reasons why obama went on the attack in the second and third debate was that he could not sit back and let romney capture the attention. >> it's been a pleasure talking to you. fascinating. >> i enjoyed it. >> we will be right back. thanks again. president obama: i'm barack obama and i approve...

8:36 am
to the dc -- cdc. last count more than 97% that were contacted. when the people are contacted they are evaluated. i know in the state of florida, some of the people notified were found to be infected. so they didn't present. they had to be notified to find out that they had the infection or the symptoms of the infection. so, they are saying that the symptoms can be so subtle that people don't know they have it. that is concerning. almost all have been contacted. the second round of drugs include drugs injected into the joint, eye or back. another drug injected into hearts. now, two patients, one was a heart transplant patient and a woman that got the different steroid inject when her back both developed fungal infections. at this point in time the fda is not saying that it was directedly linked to the nec drugs but they are asking all the medical centers to contact those individuals. at this point in time i was unable to get a count how many
8:37 am
had been contacted. that contact may come in an e- mail, letter, phone call. one of the cernes that i called said that they are personally calling each and every patient just to make sure that they are okay. >> tell us about this particular meningitis. not all meningitis from what i understand is deadly. why is this one so deadly. >> well, you know, you have to remember that fungal meningitis is relatively rare. it affects people that have come pro mizeed immune systems. this drug that was contaminated with the fungus was directed -- injected into the final cord. so, our immune testimony didn't have the opportunity in some of these individuals to fight it in essence. especially here we heard of an age rage of people as young as 27, 28 being infected up to 87. so, it can happen to anyone
8:38 am
because of the mode of transmission and the way it was injected. >> i want to switch gears quickly. all of us dealt with the stomach rumbling. i deal with it every morning on the set. people associate that with pregnancy. obviously i don't. you say everybody gets them? >> yes, they do. i mean, we all have those cravings. they are not coming from our stomach or digestive track but our brain. something within the brain triggers us to say i want that food. one of the big examples is popcorn in a movie theater or turkey dinner on thanksgiving. we associate pleasant things with the foods that we eat. we may want them or crave them. there is also the thought that perhaps we may be compromising for something else. like if we are down, we may need higher ser ton inlevels so we reach for the carbs, those carbs that help us increase the

look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again.
8:41 am
i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message.
8:42 am
well, it seven games but the world series is finally set. >> we like that. we like seven games. the giants host the detroit tigers. i don't know why i'm reading this. dave is here. he has the sports. >> when you get a game 7 it's drama. every pitch you are on the edge of your seat. not so much last night. this thing was over before it began. i kept thinking this could have been in d.c. it could have been red towels we were waving. torture but that's what i do. big play of the day. i don't know where he thought
8:43 am
the ball was going. and here comes the kung-fu panda. all three runs come around to score. 5-0 game which becomes a 9-0 game. the route was on. i guess as a nats fan do you feel better seeing the cardinals lose. >> i do. >> i wanted it to be more. >> bigger than that. >> i didn't get as much satisfaction as i thought i would seeing them lose. giants and detroit, game one tomorrow night. justin verlander going for the tigers. allison you had a chris cooley related question. a girlfriend into football had fred davis on her fantasy team. he is out. she is like should i pick up chris cooley if he's available. >> i had fred catches on my fantasy team as well. i would not rush out in the free agent market and pick up
8:44 am
chris cooley. logan paulson might be a better option as far as statistics go for the redskins. i expect him to get the start. chris cooley is back. he said this on his facebook page about 30 minutes ago. dam, i have to go to work today. work hard, play hard. >> welcome back chris. >> that's the way he rolls as the kids say. but he is back. we would expect him to practice and possibly see time sunday as well. i don't know how big of a fantasy impact he will make right away. i think eventually you will see him work himself back in as long as the knee holds up and be productive. >> he is living a fantasy life, isn't he? >> i feel bad about fred davis. he is great. that is a big loss. i had a feeling somehow cooley would come back. >> that's why he stuck around.
8:45 am
>> rg3, final thoughts, i hope fans realize how good this kid has been. this is a fourth down play. one of the better plays you will see. keep this alive and find logan paulson for the first down. that lead them down on the drive that they went ahead with on the santana moss touchdown. but he does everything. i don't want to say by himself but i will say this. he and alfred morris are the two big changes from the offense from a year ago and this offense is light-years ahead of where it was a year ago. it's all about as i like to call them the ferrari. >> what he did to complete the pass as he is going to the ground, unbelievable. >> i sat there in the meadowlands like this. he does things every week that make you drop your jaw.

8:50 am
hampton university in virginia. the scripts howard school of journalism celebrated the 10- year anniversary. part of the day's events included a hall of fame induction ceremony. well, i'm honored to say that i was one of the inductees, spencer christian is one of the inductees. so, here is what it takes. there is me. that is my cheesy picture by the plaque. it is for graduates and faculty that earned high distinction in the field of journalism and communication. i was humbled in that moment. you don't realize how you will feel when something you love so much, in this case your school, gives you that kind of honor. so, thanks to my alma mater, i love everybody very much there, president harvey and dean brett fully in the picture and the whole group that put me in that position. thank you so much. >> my girlfriend was let's get out of here before they realize

8:52 am
the play. six academy award nominations when you talk about the movie. the star in all of those is the horse itself. bringing it to life on stage is no small feat. that's why it takes three or six feet i should say to bring to life. joey, let me introduce you to the people that bring joey to life. good morning to all three of you. >> good morning. >> first of all, what is your training to be a horse? >> well, when we first got together, we were just the horses for about the first two weeks. for those two weeks we did a lot of research in the audio and watched a lot of video. we visited a couple of stables in new york to watch horse behavior and stuff like that. >> are you actors, dancers, puppeteers? what are you? >> there is a good mix of actors and dancers and a few puppet tears as well anyone
8:53 am
that starts with war horse is i will equipped. they taught us everything from the ground up. i think it's the power of teamwork. >> i'm glad you brought that up. communication has to be the key. how do you make three become one and how do you communicate on stage to make sure that it's working the way it should. >> breath is the key things. they are adamant about the puppets breathing, struggling to life to be a life form. breathing is the key to that. the heart position which brian plays, the heart and lungs of the show. so, he basically creates the breathing by doing that small plea i didn't which allows joey to rise and fall. >> we are all breathing together right now. >> i didn't know it. you guys are in sync. you are being funny when you
8:54 am
say it's subtle but for tomb people to believe the horse is real it is in those subtle movements, the twitch of the ear. >> we call it micro movement. when you see a tiny thing like the twitch of an ear or a leg stomping up and back down, the reaction is somebody in the audience nudging the person next to them, did you see that, it's scared. >> the horse is a character as much as everyone else. >> those little movements tell the story so clearly and they seem like such little things but they fill out the picture. >> let's talk about the horse sounds. how does one learn to winnie? >> it takes time. we listen to audio when we first started the first two weeks and it's so far away from where we are now. three months from now we will
8:55 am
be much more sharp. it's an ongoing thing. >> can i hear your winnie. >> sure. >> all three of us. >> yeah [horse noise]. >> that is impressive. >> i heard this role is so demanding that there is more than the three of you. there are other sets of three that play joey. >> we rotate out. >> that says a lot. so, there is the heart, head and hind. who does the sound of the hind. let's not go there. if you could say one thing to get people to come to the show, what would you say? >> it's a they at try came event for truly all ages. you will have an amazing time. if you like theater and you like history, just having a great emotional experience. >> and local boys done good.
